Scott Mitchell Putesky, more famously known as Daisy Berkowitz, the co-founding guitarist of the Marilyn Manson (originally Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids,) and later of Jack Off Jill, has passed away according to a number of his friends and bandmates. A posting on the Jack Off Jill Facebook page stated; "Saying good bye to Scott, friend, band mate, artist , hero.. RIP Scott - "always touched by your presence dear." Daisy Berkowitz." An official cause of death has yet to be revealed but in 2013, Putesky was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.

Putesky formed Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids in 1989 with the eponymous singer (AKA Brian Warner,) after meeting at an after party at the Reunion Room in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He remained with the group recording the album, "Portrait of an American Family" and the EP "Smells Like Children," before leaving halfway through the recording of "Antichrist Superstar" due to creative differences, though he does appear on the record. He would then join Jack Off Jill in 1998 and went on to record the album, "Covetous Creature" with the group and made a guest appearance with Godhead, before recording some albums with Three Ton Gate.

First Martin Ain at age 50 and now Scott Putesky at age 49. Damn. Putesky's guitar work was instrumental in forging Manson's early sonic identity. It's a damn shame he didn't do more albums with Manson. I always felt his style of play was the best fit for Manson. The song Dope Hat is an excellent example of this.
